Let’s face it: Everyone has anxiety. Furthermore, our ongoing quest to rid ourselves of this ubiquitous human emotion worsens it. What if, instead of fighting our anxiety, we could turn it into a strength? This enlightening webinar will teach you how to use anxiety to become more self-accepting, connected to others, and resilient. Author of Thriving with Anxiety, Dr. Rosmarin’s constructive, compassionate, and evidence-based approach will not make you less anxious. Instead, it will empower you to use anxiety to thrive.

You will learn:

  • To rethink anxiety from being a “disease” to being a normal human emotion;
  • How to use anxiety to increase our self-compassion;
  • How to harness the power of anxiety to enhance emotional intimacy and 
  • How can anxiety help us accomplish what we truly want in life?
